BDL: There's a couple different ways to look at it. First, you can get a look at the movie and check out the sound source for it, deciding whether that seems like it has the most "authentic" vibe.

I would suggest that the Braverman 16 track source should be considered a "reference" copy. Meaning it has no post production tinkering with the source material. Although it captured the true undiluted sound from the board, I'm sure it sounds more sterile and dryer than the Serafin source.

Finally, the Serafin source with post production reverb added, may be closer to the actual vibe than the dry production. However at outdoor facilities with no boundaries, there is little natural occurring reverb. It's also kind of difficult to great outdoor AUD's in a situation like this due to wind swirl and other factors affecting sound travel.

Ultimately, this is exactly why the matrix recordings that have been showing up seem to capture the best of both worlds. You get the precise sounds that were run through the boards, and blend the natural ambient reverb from the hall.

Keep 'em both. Listen to what you like.
